Dance Me To The End Of Love

In the first few days of two thousand and ten, the Boulder City Circle has hit the ground running. Their new fund raising musical, “Dance Me To The End Of Love” is scheduled for a February 13th evening performance at Boulder City’s Grace Community Church. Work hard, work fast! This has been the design strategy for over a dozen musically rare and ephemeral performances that disappear into the night after raising enough money to help a few folks who are in need. Three weeks ago, they staged the Christmas themed musical evening, “We Sing For Food” at St. Andrew’s Hall and St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church. Eight weeks before then it was, “The Boulder City Circle Sings Cole Porter”.

This will be the 13th BC Circle musical production produced by Nancy Porter and Phil Marcus Esser. Their shows depend on and feature the musical and theatrical talents of somewhere between sixteen and thirty people who donate their considerable talents towards whatever’s going on. Charlie Shaffer, a pianist with over 50 years of Las Vegas shows under his belt, is often performing far away on some exotic world cruise ship while a show is being designed. When he arrives back in Boulder City, he catches up and slips into the rehearsal schedule with all of the singers who have come to appreciate his amazing ability to sound like he never was missing.
